SPECIAL NEEDS 

To continue to ensure the best experience possible, we have created “Camp INC.” for children with special needs! They will be fully immersed in the traditional camp groups throughout the camp day, and will benefit from a more personalized experience with dedicated staff in alignment with either IEP or other goals. Registration for Camp INC. is separate and like all programs, space is limited! If your child needs any support this summer, please register below. Camp Gordyland -> Camp Inc.

You must contact Christina Foley at cfoley@riverbrookymca.org or 203-762-8384 ext. 207 to discuss your child’s needs, to arrange a support staff or to answer any questions.  Registration is based on program availability, required support is available on a first come first serve basis. When registering, if your child ends up being placed on the waitlist, you will be contacted by a Director when a spot becomes available!

The Wilton branch of the Riverbrook YMCA is dedicated to providing a positive, supportive and welcoming experience focused on each person’s individual needs. Our programs, including our summer camps are structured to accommodate and support all our participants to the best of our abilities. We feel that every person, adults and children should be given the opportunity to participate in all that the YMCA has to offer.

At Camp Gordyland, our campers are fully immersed in their camp group and participate in all the activities of the camp day.  At the discretion of the Special Needs Director, campers will be assigned shared paraprofessional support.  Support staff will motivate campers to be actively engaged in their group activities and provide modification when needed. Please note an IEP or other supporting documents are required following registration to aide in the preparation of your camper.

All our programs and camps are open to students who participate in summer school and we will work to accommodate each school districts schedule. The CIT program can be extended to accommodate campers beyond the age of 16 and up to age 21 provided there is availability. All campers (including CIT’s) registered as an extension of a school supported program are required to attend with district support.  Individuals registered for all programs may be asked to provide outside support if deemed necessary.

Please see specific camp based on age/grade for fees and times. The Wilton YMCA reserves the right to deem if a camper requires additional support.  At this time, the Special Needs Director or Camp Director will contact the family to discuss the proper plan.
